April Concert Postponed

The performance of J.S. Bach St Matthew Passion which was scheduled for 26 April 2020 has been postponed and will now take place in April 2022.

December Concert

We do not now propose to hold a full scale concert in December as originally planned, but are reviewing the situation regularly. If the situation improves, we may be able to perform a small scale recital before the end of the year.
